WPG Breeders

Postby Uppower » Tue Mar 03, 2015 7:26 pm

I am starting to research Griffs and was wondering about breeders producing good hunting dogs in the upper Midwest. I am from the Upper Penisula of Michigan. Do any of the surrounding states have really quality hunting stock? If not what breeders are producing the best lines of Hunting WPGs?
Thanks, Aaron

Any input on breeders with good hunting lines would be much appreciated and help me start my search!

There are a couple in Wisconsin you should consider. Griffman (aka Jamie) at Aspen Glo Kennels would be a good place to start in the Midwest as well as John Posthuma at Stonyridge Kennels. There are some other good Griff breeders outside that area that are on this forum as well, but these are the two closest to you that would be on my list.

I can vouch for what JTracy posted. I have one of John Posthuma's pups from last year's "O" liter. He did a another repeat of this breeding this year and Hannah just had those pups. I am completely happy with how my pup is progressing with hunting and also overall temperament is great!

I have also been blessed to train with Jamie and his pups via our local NCWNAVHDA chapter. His pups are also hunting machines and he is a great guy to work with!

You really can't go wrong with either of these breeders both for their pups and because they are great people that care for this breed!

Keep us updated on your hunt for a pup!

Griffman produces some nice GWP's. I train with a Aspen Glo dog 3, 4 times a week during training season. A few you might want to look at in northern Minnesota, Joe Mix, Scott Wass, and Frank Smolkey all in Grand Rapids Minnesota. I see their dogs on regular basis as well. If I was in the market for a GWP I wouldn't think twice about buying a pup from any of the guys mentioned. Scotts Duece has been getting his share of action this winter. Scott just bred Duece to Frank's female 2 to 3 weeks ago. If you'd like phone numbers PM me.

Larry Woodward in KS would be on my list. He seems to be at the IT every year with at least one of his WPG.

What are you looking to hunt? Grouse/woodcock mostly?

My only in depth experience with WPGs is a dog from Griffman. One of my good buddies that I train with has a male from him. He is excellent in the grouse woods and takes to training well.

You can start here.

http://www.navhda.org/testing/search-test-records

I'd talk to the breeders in which you have an interest to determine the objectives of the kennel and how they match with the game/type of hunting you do. I talked to several breeders, visited a few, and looked at one specific dog twice before taking one home. I excluded some breeders simply due to the terms of the contract they wanted me to sign. Check out the NAVHDA chapters and talk to the owners in person and see their dogs. Go to the dog shows and talk to the griff owners that hunt...they know who's dogs do well in the field. PM if you have questions.
